I am a member of Bundles of Joy group on BoJ is a charity group dedicated to helping needy babies and children of Pine Ridge Reservation in SD. The group decided it would be nice if all the newborns in the OB Ward on Pine Ridge had Santa hats. So I knitted a hat and have offered my pattern, "Newborn Santa Hat", for free on Ravelry. Knitted as directed, the hat will fit a newborn, but it can be made to fit a larger baby or child if you increase the cast on number of stitches by increments of 3 stitches to your required size, then follow the rest of the directions as written.

If you'd like the free Newborn Santa Hat pattern, click on the link that says "My designs on" at the far right top of the page, and it will take you to my patterns. 

Merry Christmas!


  1. I have a question about the adorable Santa Hat for newborns. I started to make it but my limited knitting knowledge is wondering how to do the stocking cap (the part that gets the pom pom) part of the hat. The pattern seems to be a regular hat pattern. I'll keep knitting, because even without the tail it will be cute. Thanks. Sue H.

  2. Hi Sue<
    If you just keep following the hat pattern, the decreases will create the long pointed stocking cap portion of the hat.It's no more complicated than a regular hat.
    Happy knitting,
